Coronavirus update

Due to the evolving Coronavirus outbreak and related concerns, our Performance Lab events in May 2020 at the Bloomsbury Theatre and Studio have been postponed or cancelled. We are working with our partners to reschedule these dates for Autumn 2020 onwards. If you have bought for shows affected by this then you will be emailed offering to transfer you tickets for the new dates or offered a full refund. We hope to be open again soon and our decision will be guided by the Government’s public health advice.

Outspoken Jazz Still Growing

What’s it like to lose your voice box after throat cancer?  And how can you give back a voice that has been taken away?

Shout at Cancer is a charity dedicated to supporting people to find their voice after laryngectomy, the surgical removal of the voice box. 

As part of UCL Culture’s Performance Lab season, Shout at Cancer presents the laryngectomy choir, who will give a powerful performance of original pieces that explore the impact and effects of this life changing procedure.

Outspoken Jazz still Growing was created through a series of collaborations with spoken word artist Bruce Sherfield, jazz vocalist Zara McFarlane and the Peter Edwards Trio. The performance will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Dr E. Himonides, with the laryngectomy Choir participants, Prof Birchall (UCL Laryngology), Shout at Cancer Founder and Director Thomas Moors.

This event is part of UCL Culture’s Performance Lab, where artists, researchers and students explore how live performance can animate research – and how research can inspire art.
